 What People Have Said About Working With Tony

“Tony Palmer is a world-class career coach. Through ExecuNet, my resume and LinkedIn profile were rewritten to project a more executive image. Tony got results. Within two weeks I had three job opportunities. An interview with one company landed me an offer, which I accepted, the next day. Tony coached me throughout the process and always made himself available. I highly recommend Tony.” —Tim Nelson

“Making recommendations, such as this, is something I did not take very lightly. I could not have engaged in more professional, dedicated and results-oriented search consultant than Tony Palmer. In addition to identifying the necessary skills and bringing forth fantastic candidates, Tony delivers in many more nontraditional ways as well. He’s a wonderful coach, advisor, and sounding board. Equally as important to me, Tony is a fantastic human being! I and my companies over the years are blessed to have worked closely with him. There are none better for the most senior level positions.” —Brett A. Milligan

“Tony and I met through the UGA MBA Career office and he provided support when I was conducting a personal career search. Tony’s extensive background in executive recruiting and coaching proved invaluable to help guide me through a process which I had little experience with, being more accustomed to the other side of the table. Tony was a great listener and prompted needed introspection with an extremely direct approach.” —Larry Nedrow

“I was referred to Tony for assistance with career coaching in my first executive role and through the subsequent transitions required to meet my professional goals. As a director level, I encountered new challenges in which it was useful to have career advice. Tony was able to address concerns and make recommendations which provided guidance to feel secure in my approach. 

Transitioning from a director role to owning my own company was an intimidating task for me. Tony provided support and guidance throughout the process. In addition, he was able to roadmap a path that could assist me in building the business over the first year.

Tony’s advice and guidance were right on the money and I experienced increased performance in my director role as well as a smooth transition into a new business owner. I felt as if I had an ally and coach, who worked with me and my style to define a path I was comfortable with. I hope to continue working with Tony in the future and would recommend him and his services for anyone looking to improve performance or make a career transition.” —Melissa Ebner
